Just about to start this job myself..according to the haynes manual you have to remove the radiator support brackets, exhaust downpipes, and a load of other bits, and i just found out i have a 1996 engine in my 97 model.... it looks quite a complicated job so i think i may garage it. btw if the radiator bottom gaurd is secured by rivets you will have to drill them out.

Hi there!

Usually have to take wheel arch cover and wheel off, then pass it out from below.
Take all mounting bolts out first.

If this solves the problem, please rate as Fixya! thanks - otherwise I'll find more specific info. Thanks.

Why is there tension on my steering wheel when i try an turn my 2002 zx2 for escort


If it became stiff over time, the most reasonable thing to assume is a problem with the Power Steering System: Check the fluid level, if that's fine then the power steering pump may be failing. Before you waste your money on a garage repair, try flushing your old power steering fluid by removing the bottom hose to drain the fluid or use a pressure evacuator to remove it, then put the hose back on and refill it with your engine running in order to turn the pump and run the fliud through. If all else fails, replace the pump.
If your steering become stiff for just a moment while your driving, your pump can be failing just like above. Have it inspected before your replace it.

Fig. 7: Typical power steering pump hose routing-1996 shown


The following procedure requires the use of the GM Puller tool No. J-29785-A (1985-92), Puller J-25034-B (1993-96) or equivalent, and the GM Pulley Installer tool No. J-25033-B or equivalent.
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable for safety.
  2. For 1996 vehicles, remove the air cleaner assembly for access.
  3. For 1993-96 vehicles, remove the hood latch and the upper fan shroud.
  4. Release tension and remove the drive belt.
  5. Remove the power steering pump pulley using a suitable puller tool.
  6. Remove the power steering pump retaining bolts, then reposition the pump as necessary for access to the hoses.
  7. Position a fluid catch pan under the power steering pump.
  8. Remove the hoses from the power steering pump and drain the excess fluid into the catch pan.
WARNING Be sure to cap all openings in the pump hydraulic system to prevent excessive fluid spillage and the possibility of system contamination.
  1. Remove the power steering pump from the vehicle.
To install:
  1. Position the pump to the vehicle, then uncap and connect the pump hoses.
  2. Install the steering pump to the retaining bracket, then secure using the retaining bolts. Tighten the power steering pump-to-bracket bolts to 37 ft. lbs. (50 Nm). For 1996 vehicles, tighten the nut to 30 ft. lbs. (41 Nm).
On early-model vehicles where the drive belt is tensioned by pivoting the power steering pump assembly, do NOT fully tighten the mounting bolts at this time, since you will just have to loosen them again for belt installation and adjustment.
  1. Install the pump pulley using the GM Pulley Installer tool No. J-25033-B or equivalent. Press the drive pulley onto the power steering pump.
  2. Hand-tighten the pivot bolt, the adjusting bolt and the washer.
  3. Install the drive belt. On early-model vehicles so equipped, properly adjust the belt tension. For details on belt installation and tension adjustment.
  4. For 1993-96 vehicles install the upper fan shroud and the hood latch assembly.
  5. For 1996 vehicles, install the air cleaner assembly.
  6. Connect the negative battery cable.
  7. Refill the power steering reservoir and bleed the power steering system.
  8. Remove the jackstands and carefully lower the vehicle.
  9. Road test the vehicle, then check and top-off the power steering fluid.

hope this help (remember rated this post) Good luck.

How do change a water pump on 1998 ford escort


You have too remove the alternator, tensioner pulley, and probably would help to disconnect the power steering hose too give you a little more room too work. Now getting the pulley off the water pump is always the pain, see if you can loosen those bolts before removing the tension on the serpentine belt. If not try using a rubber oil filter remover to hold while you loosen the bolts.
